Syrian Kurds accuse Turkey of aiding sarin gas delivery to rebels after fresh chemical attacks

In an interview with RT, a spokesman for the Kurdish YPG militia accused Turkey of providing a clear transit route for the chemical weapons that were deployed against them near the city of Aleppo on Tuesday.

Syrian anti-government militants “took advantage of the ceasefire” to launch attacks against a Kurdish-controlled area near Aleppo in northern Syria, Redur Xelil told RT. The attackers targeted a civilian district of what was once Syria’s biggest city, and has since become a key battleground. According to Xelil, the shells emitted an“unnatural smell” and “yellow smoke” upon impact, indicating that chemical weapons were involved.

“Our sources inside the rebel groups have confirmed that toxic substances were used. We also have verified information that sarin gas was delivered to them from Turkey. All signs point to the fact that these factions were using banned weapons, but we cannot access the launching area, as it is located on the front between the Turkish and rebel forces,” Xelil told RT by Skype from Rojava in Syria.

Kurdish deputies in the Turkish parliament have previously accused Ankara of supplying Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) and other jihadist groups inside Syria with chemical weapons, which are used both in their fight against the Syrian government and to pin responsibility for their deployment on the regime of President Bashar Assad.

Tuesday’s attack, which also involved phosphorus, did not result in any severe casualties.

“This attack was a failure, but this doesn’t mean that there won’t be another one. We are convinced the enemy has improvised shells containing phosphorus and sarin gas,” said Xelil.

Last month, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) accused IS of using chemical weapons against Kurdish forces throughout 2015. Reports emerged on Wednesday revealing that the jihadist group had launched a new chemical attack on the Kurdish village of Zaza in northern Iraq, in which more than 40 civilians suffered chemical burns and lung damage.

Syria in Last 24 Hours: ISIL Terrorists Sustain Heavy Losses in Army’s Offensive in Damascus Countryside

The Syrian army and popular forces continued their military operations against the terrorist groups in Damascus countryside, and killed scores of militants over the past 24 hours.

The Syrian army killed and wounded scores of the ISIL militants in Damascus countryside.

The Syrian army also inflicted heavy losses on the terrorist groups in other key province across Syria.


Syrian warplanes, in a fresh round of combat flights on Friday, targeted the ISIL gathering centers Northeast of Damascus province and pinned down the terrorists behind their lines of defense.

The Syrian warplanes’ bombardments of the ISIL positions in the passages of Wadi Karam, Matabiyeh al-Roumiyat and al-Zamrani in Qalamoun mountain’s Jaroud al-Jarajir ended in the killing or injuring of dozens of the terrorists and destroyed their military equipment and vehicles.

Reports said earlier that the Syrian Army troops continued to target the concentration centers of the terrorists, mainly from the al-Nusra Front, in Eastern Ghouta and inflicted a heavy death toll on the militants.

The Syrian soldier attacked al-Nusra combatants in Shaher Farms near al-Marj region, which ended in the killing or wounding of dozens of terrorists and destroyed their military hardware in large scale.


The Syrian Army troops, backed up by the Russia fighter bombers, stormed the ISIL concentration centers in the Western and Southwestern sides of the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur) and inflicted major casualties on the terrorists on Friday.

The two regions of al-Duweh and Jabal al-Hayal were the scenes of fierce clashes between the Syrian army and the ISIL Takfiri terrorists.

Army sources said, at least 12 ISIL terrorists were killed and several more were injured in the army attack in one of the fronts, while the terrorists sustained heavier casualties in the second battlefield.

The Syrian Army continued to advance against the ISIL terrorists in the Southeastern part of Homs province and recaptured one more key hilltop in the region.

The ISIL left behind tens of dead or wounded members and pulled its forces back form their position near Hill 903 under the heavy offensives of the Syrian army and allies.

The Syrian government forces deployed forces only 1,500 meters from Western entrance of the ancient Assyrian town of Quaryatayn.


Continued bombardments of al-Nusra Front centers in Southeastern Idlib ended in the killing of many terrorists and forced the rest of them to pull back from a key village.

The Russian Air Force pounded the al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front’s concentration centers in the village of Abu al-Dhuhour and forced the group to abandon their headquarters at the village in order to evade more casualties.

The latest Russian airstrike over Abu al-Dhuhour killed over 25 al-Nusra members, while also destroying their large weapons depot inside the village.

Al-Nusra terrorists first built their headquarters in Abu al-Dhuhour during their large-scale offensive to capture the Abu al-Dhuhour Military Airport; this installation is located directly East of the village.


The ISIL terrorists retreated from their positions Southeast of Aleppo province under the heavy assaults of the Syrian Army and popular forces.

The Syrian army and the National Defense Forces drove the Takfiri terrorists back from the villages of al-Qleah, Helleh, Hakeel, Kherbet al-Mous and the Hill Bohouth in the Eastern side of Khanaser-Sfeira road.

The ISIL suffered a heavy death toll and its military hardware sustained major damage on the attacks.

The Syrian army, volunteer troops and Hezbollah managed to retake full control of five villages near the town of Khanasser in the Northern province of Aleppo.

The Syrian army continued its advances in the Northern province by taking back the villages of Zabad, Touba, al-A’la, al-Hayat al-Saghira and al-Hayat al-Kabira in the Northeastern parts of the strategic town of Khanasser in Aleppo province.

Tens of ISIL militants were killed and wounded during the operations and their vehicles and weapons were destroyed.
